| 2002 MIAC All-Conference Team |
Derek Dormanen and Chad Felstul Earn MIAC Postseason Honors.
He led the league in saves and total appearances as a pitcher.
He finished fourth in the MIAC in batting average at .439.
For the second straight year Concordia starting infielders Derek Dormanen
(Jr., Menahga, Minn./Menahga HS) and Chad Felstul (Sr., Morris, Minn./Morris
Area HS) were named to the MIAC All-Conference Team. The pair led Concordia
to a fourth place finish in the MIAC with a 13-7 league record and to a
21-13 overall record. The 21 wins marks the first time the team has cracked
the 20-win barrier since the 1995 season.
Senior firstbaseman Felstul finished second on the team in batting average at .393, which was the highest of his four-year career. In league play he finished with a .439 average, fifth best in the MIAC. He also finished fourth in the league in slugging percentage (.758), sixth in on-base percentage (.493), tied for fourth in total bases (50) and tied for second in doubles (9). His season total in two-baggers of 12 pushed his four-year total to 34, which pushed him past Chris Coste (Fargo, N.D. '95) for the school record in that category.
Dormanen carried on the success he started in his sophomore season by hitting .336 for the season - gathering 36 hits, 22 RBI's and 60 total bases. In league play Dormanen finished slightly better with a .349 average. He led the league in walks with 12.
The real area where Dormanen excelled for Concordia this season was as the team's closer coming out of the bullpen. After being moved from a starting pitching position to the bullpen early in the year, Dormanen finished the season with a team-high seven saves and 43 strikeouts.
In league play Dormanen had a 3.10 ERA, pitched in 29.1 innings and
recorded all seven of his saves. He led the league in saves and appearances
at 12. He also finished tied for seventh in the league in strikeouts with
29 and was the only relief pitcher in the top seven in that category.
